Tank looks great!

Unfortunately that fish combo make not work for long - do you have plans to upgrade in the future or rehome one of those fish?

Blood parrot and Oscar can’t be together?
And it’s going great!

Not in a 75 gal tank. It's borderline for an adult oscar alone, and if you want to keep him with other cichlids, you'll need a much bigger tank. A BP isn't a good tank mate for an oscar though, as BPs can't usually defend themselves against oscar aggression because they are deformed.

Thanks for the info, I had no clue! If I were to add something with him, do you have a suggestion by chance? Even just one fish would be nice with him.

No, I wouldn't keep anything with him in a 75 gal tank. He could kill it, and it's not worth the risk.

Agreed, the poor things have an oddly misshapen body, they are cute though.

In your guises opinion. I’ve been thinking, do you think a surface skimmer would be a good idea for this aquarium? I’ve seen them and seen what they can do but I’m not sure
